Start with the right speaker, that is you control for now. plug in the power supply one end to the wall the other to the right speaker, connect the left and right speakers, connect the sub woofer to the right speaker, (most of the plug and sockets are color coded, or at least different sockets sizes so they will only fit properly with the correct connector) now you should have one wire left coming out of the right speaker-that gets connected into the GREEN socket of you computer.
Now you should get sound...good it works.
From here we go to START->SETTINGS->CONTROL PANEL->RIGHT CLICK ON SOUND AND AUDIO DEVICES->VOLUME TAB->ADVANCE (TO THE RIGHT OF SPEAKER VOLUME->SPEAKER SETUP->FOR THE DROP DOWN ARROW SELECT DESKTOP STEREO SPEAKER->APPLY->OK
And that my friend is properly done.
enjoy,,, please leave a rating, thank you

Good afternoon, I recently bought a SA VE325 speaker set it contained a subwoofer, 4 little boxes and a mid-large box which you haeb have tpo piuyt above uyour tv. Now the problem is we have no cCENTER to...



Hello there looking at the manual i would assume that the mid-large box is actually your centre speaker.

Did you mean that there are no connections left on the back of your amplifier? For a centre speaker this system uses all passive speakers apart from the subwoofer which has a built in amplifier for just the subwoofer, your hifi or home cinema amplifier would need to have at least 5 separate channels to operate the centre speaker as well as the front and rear speakers.

Ideally you would need a 5.1 channel or 5 channel amplifier with subwoofer pre output, any would do but to make things simple one with a digital optical or coaxial input would be best as this can easily carry multi-channel audio with just one connector.

The other alternative if your amplifier does not have a centre speaker output are:



· to get another basic mono stereo amplifier to power the centre speaker on its own however if your main amplifier does not have a pre out connector for a centre speaker you will have to change the volume independently on both amplifiers

We found a pair of Boston (computer?) speakers in the trash, but the cords attached to them are confusing...on the main speaker the 2 cords have 1 end that fits into my headphone port on my laptop (like...


I have a similar set of speakers at home from the same company. For the pair i have, they are attached to an amplifier which provides the power to these speakers. without the amplifier, these speakers will not work. Now you can take the speakers to radioshack or a similar company and see if there is an specific type of amplifier that you can buy to work with these speakers, but im not sure if the speakers work at all!
hope this helps! Thumbs up if it did :)

Does the Dell Vostro 220 have built in speakers and if so how do I activate them?


No the desktop doesn't have internal speakers. Connect external speakers to the Line Out (green audio jack) for basic computer headphones and speakers with an integrated amplifier. See the manual for directions on setting up surround sound systems. http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/vos220/en/index.htm Make sure the speakers are on and have power, if needed.

I hope this helps.

Appropriate voltage for PS-57


Speakers don't use a voltage level to determine their usage- they use an "ohms" rating, like 4 ohms or 8 ohms. Ohms is written as an omega symbol. You have to match the ohms rated output of the computer to the speakers, or you can either blow the speakers up, or overload your amplifier and burn something up (usually a transistor). The power rating is also used to match components (expressed in watts, or the letter W). You can use a higher power rated speaker with a lower power rated amplifier, but you have to be careful of the opposite case. At some point at the upper end of the volume knob, you will draw too much current and blow the amplifier. Most people do this because it used to be that loud, etc., but in reality, you will never get the same volume with a lower power rated speaker system, and trying to will jepeordize your amplifier. I searched the net, but noone had any technical info on them, but I did see some pictures. My guess is that they're 8 ohm speakers with a very high power rating. Just make sure your amplifier is rated 8 ohms too, good luck! (P.S. if you're amplifier is rated 4 ohms on the output, I would recommend getting an 8 ohm output amplifier on ebay, in the event the speakers are 8 ohms) Hope this helps.

Standard speakers to the computer , low volume


You are getting low volume because there is no amplifier in those speakers. Computer speaker sets are powered -- there is an amp in one of them them which drives both speakers -- a computer audio output without an amplifier will only satisfactorily drive headphones.

Can a rf 201s amp push 4-6x9s and 4-104s door speakers


Hello jon_jonmay,

Wiring 4 speakers to each of 2 channels, you will need to wire them series-parallel and run them at 4 ohms. If you wire all 4 parallel, the load will be 1 ohm and the amp is only stable down to 2 ohms.

According to your manual, the 201s will deliver 50 watts into each channel at 4 ohms . So it will be supplying about 12.5 watts per speaker which is about what you get with the average factory radio. They will work OK, but they're not going to be very loud.

Hope this helps.

Making an mp3 speaker system


you need an integrated amplifier like the ones used in stereo systems. The output of an mp3 players is at a level only sufficient for headphones and must be amplified alot to provide the current needed for large speakers.

Connect DVD Player to logitech X 540 Surround System


Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output

Can the cable ends be converted to fit a DVD?


You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue - z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd. If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible. Logitech says; "Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier. Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier." Hope this helps - please post back with details :)
